For parents who feel like cute clothing options for baby boys are limited, My Sweet Pea, which opened on November 21, is a welcome relief. Owner Sheri Chablis was tired of searching for unique clothing for her son and coming up empty-handed, so she decided to solve her own problem. "I've always wanted to open a little shop," she says. "So when the space next to my real estate office became available, I jumped right in."
My Sweet Pea, named for the nickname Chablis bestowed on her son, carries both boys and girls clothing, though the shop stemmed from the idea of creating more options for boys. Offering items for various occasions, the space is stocked with a wide array of clothes, toys, furniture, and personalized items. Some of Chablis's favorite pieces include matching "Daddy and Me" button down shirts, complete with paisley collars and cuffs, and "Mommy and Me" dress coats. The store focuses on high-end clothing, and aims to provide unique pieces that cannot be found elsewhere.
Though Chablis insists the store is primarily a side project, she has big plans for the future. ShaSha the Clown will be making visits to weekly Story Time on Tuesdays at 10:30am, and Grandparents Day, Daddy Nights, and fund-raising events are in the works.
My Sweet Pea is located at 159 South Main Street in New City. For more information, call 914-906-2900.
